How Stem Cells Work In Tooth Repair?
, does StemCell also grow root canals / repair root canals in teeth? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question.
Stem cells are still an interesting topic in the world of health because they can be used to replace damaged body cells. However, the use of stem cells is still under further research before it can be ascertained that the use of these cells really guarantees its effectiveness and safety in humans. The use of stem cells is still being studied to improve the condition of damaged teeth. Stem cells can be extracted from the tooth pulp (inner tissue of the tooth) which is then developed before they can be used to regenerate tooth decay. It is thought that these stem cells can repair dental pulp, dentin, periodontal ligaments, dental bones and dental nerves. However, once again, research on the use of stem cells to repair tooth decay is still in progress, so it is not yet certain whether this method will prove to be effective. For now, regarding root canal problems, the method that is still used is root treatment which can be discussed further with the dentist.
Hope this information is helpful.
